    I actually got the generic brand I looked for it in my bathroom drawer. It's called Retisol-A...tretinocin cream, topical acne cream with spf 15.

    I had some other kind of gel cream b4 but I forgot what that was but it basically did the same thing. It may cause some minor peeling.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    Where do you live in BC fbwl?
    I'd be lucky to get free samples, since my parents have spent a lot of money for me on my acne. I nearly went on Acutane, like my Sister did, but luckly the Doc. didn't think my acne was that severe. Thanks.

    Actually moomies, I live in Port Coquitlam. Where do you live in Canada?

    I think that it would be much easier for me to go to my Doc. and then get Tazoric? It would probably a lot cheaper. If my Doc. approves of me using it.

    I'm in Vancouver. My dermatologist is/was in Yaletown (posh part of downtown Van) but she took a study leave and doing some research at UBC now so she's no longer in practice. But I would have recommended her to you, she's the one that gave me free samples. Another specialist I saw was at the skincare center in VGH.
    You'd prolly need a referral to see a skin specialist/specialized dermatologist there.

    I don't know if they have a website but the skincare center at VGH (Vancouver General Hospital) is called Lions Skin Care Center or something like that. They are also in the phone book I think. It's also affliated with UBC.

    My doctor has told me not to use Retin-A, so I guess I won't be able to, but I will just stick with Salicyic Acid. It has worked for me before...
    I'm also thinking of using Masks, and such, but would home-made masks be better, or store brand ones? I've heard of using Honey on your skin is great, too.
